check your wires Ducati 916

As you can see from the pictures. This is the lead from the rectifier which is located behind the battery. I had tested the voltage and condition of the battery. Just in case it affected the running of the bike. The readings for charging was ok. The battery slightly low. Only 12volts. As i had problems with starting I bought a New battery from Pad at Greyhounds. When i removed the battery holder. Behind i noticed this plug. As you can see the wires had started to overheat. At some point the plastic started to burn.
This now has been replaced and renewed by Pat at Viking Motorcycles.
If you have a Ducati. Spend some time to check the condition of your leads. Could save you being stranded one day.
